About Rayward

Rayward Apparel is a brand committed to UV protection and skin cancer prevention. We believe you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your comfort or style to keep your skin protected. Whether you are a professional athlete or simply enjoy lounging in the sun, we have you covered. All of our products are not only extremely comfortable, but each color and style is UPF certified to ensure you are keeping your skin safe from UV exposure.

Rayward Apparel is dedicated to producing quality apparel designed to protect you from the sun. Skin cancer is the #1 diagnosed cancer in America, yet we continue to wear clothing that fails to protect our skin from UV radiation. Rayward exclusively produces lab certified sun protective clothing specifically designed to keep you safe during a full day in the sun—all without sacrificing comfort, style or convenience.

Our vision extends beyond clothing with Rayward Apparel’s commitment to the skin cancer community. To support the fight against skin cancer, we partnered with The Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA), the world’s largest non-profit funder of melanoma research. With this partnership we’re increasing awareness of the risks of UV exposure while also helping with MRA’s research goals: 5% of all Rayward Apparel online sales are donated to the MRA with 100% of our donations going directly to this critical research. 

Our Mission

More Adventure. Less Exposure.

To create sun protective apparel that fits your lifestyle,
because the world revolves around the sun, but your life shouldn’t.

The average shirt may cover your skin, but it does little to truly protect it from UV damage. Staying protected shouldn’t mean staying indoors, and it also shouldn’t inconvenience you with frequent sunscreen applications or demand sacrificing comfort and performance. Now, it doesn’t—shop our UPF apparel today!
